TopBraid Enterprise Data Governance Support Options

Support Coverage

 

Below are the guidelines for what is included with the different levels of support for TopBraid Enterprise Data Governance (EDG).

 

TopQuadrant offers the Standard TopBraid EDG Support and Maintenance as well as two optional Premium Levels of Support – Gold and Platinum. Note that the Premium Support is an add-on to the Standard Support. Premium Support tickets will be addressed up to the annual limit of support hours included with each level of support. Customers must have standard support to add premium support. Anything covered under standard support will remain a standard support ticket and not counted towards premium support hours.

 

Contact sales@topquadrant.com to purchase premium support.

 

For more details on TopBraid Support and Maintenance, please see legal.

 

(Since Premium Support adds-on to Standard Support ‘*’ in the Premium column indicates that these types of requests are included as covered by Standard Support.
